Excellent fresh fish, river crab and sea crab.....outside so warm but many fans. Waiter could understand us and English menu. Great service...hard to find. Needed directions from locals as address not correct....well worth it.

White Sail Cafe (Canh Buom Trang) is no longer at the beach where many restaurants closed last year due to sea erosion. White Sail is located in a small street of Hôi An and this restaurant is always full. It's a typical Vietnamese restaurant, they come for family reunion or for business... You can order the fish of the day... More

Recommended by our tailor at Le Le, we ate twice at this local joint. The Wok Hei for the fried rice was good, the steamed prawns were fresh, the Bbq squid excellent, the vegetables passable but the steam fish average. Definitely worth a visit if one is missing food from Singapore.

Went on full moon night and got table by beach - it was awesome. Food was good, we had spring rolls and satay chicken. Drinks are inexpensive and good - Jameson was 55000 dong. Easy cab ride from Hoi An

I don't really want to share this gem of a restaurant, but I must. I have been going here for years.....it is not often I see other foreigners. The food is amazing and I love checking out the fresh seafood and shellfood before I make my decision. They do have an English menu. If you are not with a local... More

Good quality, well cooked seafood. Great stuffed squid. Super grilled fish. Hoan Thanh were the best I've eaten anywhere in Hoi An, hearty and crunchy and laden with good toppings. Nice veggies and tofu. I'd probably give the meat dishes a miss. Setting is very nice - can't go wrong with An Bang beach in front of you. Random cocktails... More

a great place to chill out and have some fresh cooked food by the beach. Owners' English is great, and they allowed us to park our bikes nearby thereby avoiding the 'park here!' people on the main rd.

The main appeal of this place is to eat some fresh barbecued seafood in a relaxed beach front setting for not much money. Sit overlooking the attractive An Bang beach and watch the sunset whilst feasting on prawns and scallops. The portions are small-ish so you can order a few things. Prawns were the standout dish but the lemongrass BBQ... More
